On our way to the Nu’anu Pali, we stopped to take a look at Hānaiakamalama, the summer palace of Queen Emma, King Kamehameha IV, and their son, Prince Albert Edward. The house is referred to as Queen Emma’s Summer Palace.
One of the first items you encounter is a hatstand in the entry hall, built specifically for Queen Emma, who stood only 5’2”.
In the front right room is the bed of King Alexander ʻIolani Liholiho (Kamehameha IV). As beds for kings go, this is pretty modest.
One of Queen Emma’s beds is placed near the king’s bed. Note the pullout drawers for personal items.
One the back rooms had the beautifully carved wood cradle of Prince Albert Kamehameha, Queen Emma’s only son, whom they named after Queen Victoria’s Prince Albert. The post held mosquito netting. Note also the large washing bowl, a gift to the King and Queen from the Ming Dynasty in China.
